Wolfson Children’s Critical Care Tower

When completed in early 2021, the new building will serve as the new front entrance to both Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, which provide our region with highly specialized tertiary and quaternary services, including pediatric trauma care.

The building is designed to make it easy for patients and visitors to find their way anywhere in the medical center, as well as to increase visibility and accessibility from I-95. To enhance convenience and safety, it will be linked directly to the medical center’s new multi-level parking deck by a skybridge over Palm Avenue.

“This new building will be our new ‘front door,’ essentially reorienting our entire campus,” said Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville Hospital President Michael Mayo. “We intend to create an extraordinary patient and family experience for all who enter.”

I-95 Overland Bridge Replacement Project

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began January 14, 2013 to replace the series of overpasses that carry traffic over Hendricks, Kings and Montana avenues along 2.3 miles of I-95 near downtown Jacksonville in Duval County. Known as the Overland Bridge project, it will improve traffic flow along the I-95 corridor just south of the Fuller Warren Bridge. I-95 will be widened to provide an additional lane for southbound traffic. As the project is built, traffic will use parallel roadways, which upon completion of the I-95 bridge structures, will remain and provide additional capacity for traffic between the Fuller Warren Bridge and north of Emerson Street.
